The testimony of Professor Revilo Pendleton Oliver was taken at 2 p.m., on September 9, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, D.C., by Mr. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission. Professor Oliver was accompanied by his attorney, Mr. John Unger. Mr. Jenner. Mr. Reporter, this is Mr. Revilo Pendleton Oliver of Urbana, Ill. Doctor, would you mind standing so I can swear you. Do you swear that in the deposition which you are about to give that you will tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Mr. Oliver. I do. This is a deposition and not a hearing? Mr. Jenner. It is the same thing. We call hearings when the Commission, a member of the Commission is present. These are hearings but we call them deposition hearings. And all of your testimony will be published in full in volume XV of the testimony volumes, and without any editing, expurgating, or deletion. Mr. Oliver. Will all testimony be published? Mr. Jenner. Yes, sir; every bit. It now runs 15 printed volumes. Mr. Unger. May I interrupt just a second.

Don't you intend to have a member of the Commission present at this hearing? Mr. Jenner. No; unless you desire to have one. Mr. Unger. Well, I didn't understand that it was a matter of preference. I understood that under the rules under which you operated it wasn't a legal hearing unless you did have one. Mr. Jenner. It is a hearing; what you are reading is a hearing at which the Commission is sitting as distinguished from a deposition hearing. You will find also in the rules, John, that you have, that they provide for the deposition hearings. Mr. Unger. Are you referring now to the second paragraph which says that any member of the Commission or any agent or agency designated by the Commission for such purpose may administer oaths and affirmation, examine witnesses, and receive evidence? Mr. Jenner. Yes, sir. Mr. Unger. I wouldn't normally take that as repealing a previous section that a member be present at all hearings. Mr. Jenner. It doesn't repeal it, it supplements it. Mr. Unger. You see, the subpoena under which Dr. Oliver is here commands him to appear before the President's Commission. ...
